NOTE - - VACATIONS AND SHOP HOURS
Please have patience with Saturday and Sunday Contacts.
I do not have 24/7 Staff on Call, while I do answer calls and emails occassionally on Sunday afternoon, don't count on it as I have other demands on my time in the weekends, and nothing disturbs Downton Abby!
Leave a message for Monday morning!
Plan Ahead: I will be out of the office February 26 - March 10.
Staff will take care of some needs, but most will wait 'til March 11!
These will be two weeks of special musical importance! Number 1 Granddaughter's Senior Recital at JMU, followed by Number 2 Granddaughter as Little Red Ridding Hood in her School Musical, in Michigan!
Very important for this Grandma to be there, both events!, with camera, flowers, and smiles and huggs!!!!

We have all of the Competition Music in stock for Gillet/Fox and Young Artists. Order now and get free shipping on all competition music!
The Web Catalog is working better. The missing "Music for Oboe" Category is restored! This means you can now browse the Oboe music sections.
I will leave the PDF files up and UP-DATE them periodically. Many have found this an easy way to browse and also to print yourself a hard copy catalog. Go for it!
To use the catalog order system, yet a bit frustrating! Sorry!!
- It takes your order, you get your confirmation, but you have to wait up to a minute for the order system to do its thing.
- Don't push the confirm button more than once or we will have duplicate and triplicate orders, and you get email confirmations of all of them! But I will ship only one order!
- PayPal has an attitude problem. You can use it, but when I receive your PayPal Order I will send you a PayPal Invoice with the exact amount of your purchase and shipping. You can then pay the PayPal Invoice by asking your account to post a payment to
Not really so difficult! This works especially well for foreign orders with shipping estimates not very close to reality.
Your Credit card from the On-Line Order System will go through Authorize.net and is very secure. This does working well, foreign or domestic. I use only the amount of your invoice from the estimate.
- The search box still finds what ever you ask of it, by composer or a word or a title. Keep it simple. i.e. Go first to a general category like "Music for Oboe", then type in 'Sonat' (which gets you both German Sonate and English Sonata), or 'Bach, J'
I still welcome your order by E-mail, Contact Form, Fax, or Telephone.
Remember the dark ages when you wrote your order in a letter and mailed it to me?
The category "Music for Oboe" is back in the catalog listing, but you can still
